Indigo dye kit
By The Art Lady

Comments about Jacquard Indigo Dye Kit:
The indigo dye kits were a big success during the summer art camp I taught in as a teaching artist with over 60 kids. The dye vat didn't seem to run out although I made new every day. The residue dye washed out easy from the sink we were rinsing in and our hands, especially mine. I had my hands in the dye 3 days, the only staining was a light stain on my finger nails.I will use this dye kit again. I highly recommend using it. The directions say the kit will dye 15 t-shirts but I believe it will dye twice as much without the dye being watered down. This kit is a wonderful investment and we had a blast dyeing....ha ha
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is a little bit of splurge considering my modest school budget, but it is really nice lesson that the kids love. Yes, indigo does have an odor but it not really that bad. If you haven't tried this process I would recommend it.

Awesome natural dye
from Montreal, QC
Easy to follow directions. I would recommend using goggles for when you cut off resist materials (cord and rubber bands). Great deep blue colour on various natural or part natural fabrics. Colours a lot of pieces and the indigo bath stayed well over several days. Great for group art sessions!

Excellent kit for beginning dyers
By I love this place
from Austin, TX
I had never done indigo dyeing before but wanted to give it a try. This kit not only gives you exactly what you need for one dye vat but also includes detailed instructions as well as suggestions for various Shibori style ways of folding and binding your items. My first dyeing experience went perfectly.

My daughter did a report on Indigo. She was planning on processing her own dye from the plant but found out in her research that the process was quite hazardous. We chose to use this kit instead. It was safe and easy to do. She dyed home spun yarn and made cotton tie-dyed T-Shirts. They came out beautiful. Be sure to read all of the instructions first and by all means WEAR THE GLOVES and use a wooden stick to remove garments from the vat, unless you want blue hands and even bluer fingernails.

Great kit to get started with indigo dye
from San Diego, CA
I used this kit to dye t-shirts and scarves. I loved the richness of the indigo dye,and the effects I got from folding, binding, and using rubber bands on the cloth. The results exceeded my expectations.The cons were the strong smell of the dye and the learning curve I had to go through when using indigo dye for the first time :) The instructions included in the kit are good and I recommend reading them very thoroughly before jumping in.I plan on buying another kit.

Not for children
from Fairfax, VA
This may be fine for young adults, done over a period of days, but definitely not as a tie dye project for children. The dye vat is strong smelling (must be covered), and the process is slow -- you can't agitate the dye, so can only do one or two at a time it seems.The final product is beautiful, but only because the instructor did ALL of them herself, over a period of days, at home. So this is probably best left for home projects -- in which case it would get an enthusiastic recommendation from me!The bottom line recommendation is for a fellow artist, and not for another teacher.
